Great views, but not much else

Despite only being 3.6 miles from PTP airport, this hotel is exceedingly hard to find. This was mostly because it is under a different name on their street signs. "Les Gites de l'Union" is what you should search for on your drive. Also, this hotel is literally on top of a giant hill. The hill looked so steep that, for a minute, we debated parking at the bottom and walking up because we did not think our car would be able to make the ascent.
The other thing to know about this hotel is that they do not speak ANY English. Of course, we weren't really expecting them to since we were in a French speaking country, but it's important to know that even though it is very close to the international airport, you need to be fluent to stay here.
They were unable to find my reservation through Expedia, and when they charged me for the room, they did not understand that they had their machine set to debit, instead of credit.
The room itself was clean and spacious, but the window and door that led to the joined patio didn't close all the way, and did not have a lock that we could use. This led to us feeling nervous and many mosquitos coming in our room. The hotel did not have mosquito nets to sleep with.
The 24 hour airport shuttle does not exist. The hotel staff pointed me to a number to call someone to pick us up and drop us off, but we weren't sure if that was a taxi, a shuttle, or what... the office lady would not help us book the shuttle. We had to use our own phone.
